Princeton University Relief Fund established to advance local community efforts in response to COVID-19

Princeton University has established the Princeton University Relief Fund to provide additional direct support to community organizations that are working to alleviate economic distress related to COVID-19 among individuals and businesses. The initial University commitment to the fund will be $1 million. “Many local families, service organizations and businesses are struggling as a result of  the pandemic. Princeton has been actively engaged in early efforts to alleviate pressing needs, and we believe there will be an opportunity to continue to do so over the long term as the response continues,” said President Christopher L. Eisgruber. “The University is proud to be a member of the local community. At this critical time, we want to find ways to support those who serve our closest neighbors.”
